This is my second year assembling a December Daily before December begins. Thanks to Ali Edwards for the inspiration.

So thankful for Stacey's help on this one. Her bind-it-all and big binding hoop enabled me to expand this little book. Left just one page empty for Thanksgiving in Asheville.
Love these two pages featuring fun with the Vians. So grateful to Annie and Marty.
On to December Daily. Kira lent home her sewing machine today. What a help! It works so smoothly. I stitched these birds. I got the pattern for them from Lori last night. She got them at a recent unnamed workshop. :) It's so fun to share stuff with her. She notices the details.
This is my second December daily. Ali Edwards inspired both last year and this year with her version of this. Have seen some other people create some similar books. I love the idea that the structure is complete in November. All there is to do in December is add the photos and words. It was a fun project last year, so I'm committed to this year as well.
So happy to call this one done after adding a missing photo. I love making these pinwheels. I provided steps for this cool goodie at our last tarragon gathering.
Th Doo Dah is such a fun parade and celebration. Since I was gimpy I accepted a shoulder ride from Jesse.
I created a bunch of these bookmarks and tokens for each of my adult students. They have been very well received.

I created this card for Cindy, a fellow Ohio Weseleyan professor. The card is to celebrate her art opening at the Dublin Arts Castle. Thanks to Karen Nuce for allowing me to use her toy to emboss this cool flower shape.
Ghostland layout. It contains some cool metal buttons. Thanks to Lori for lending the cool border punch.
Some layouts to document our cool Independence Day party. We love to host parties when Ellen is in town.

I played with this layout while with my art group, tarragon. Lori gave me some green tea colored glimmer mist as part of my prize from a summer challenge. Jamie lent me the plastic guide for the glimmer mist. Our challenge was to use three ribbons. I also added those to the mix here.

I used my new Photoshop brushes to create these cool bookmarks for my adult students at Kinsale, Westerville, Dublin, Verizon, and OWU. (I did not give them to my college students.) All recipients really like the gesture. I also created some special ones for my workmates at a few locations. It is a fun way to frame my cool logo, right? :)

I'm celebrating a new 20 inch monitor, new gig of RAM installed by Julia and now new CS3 is installed. No photo is safe! Woo-hoo! I loaded new brushes. That swirly frame is a brush that I just stamped onto the photo. This is one thing that my old Photoshop could not do. Love this look. Catching up on lessons now. Yay.
Love my photoshop.
